ATC grants 14-day judicial remand to Farzana’s father

Court orders police to complete, submit charge sheet against accused in ‘honour killing’

LAHORE – The Anti-Terrorist Court (ATC) on Saturday granted 14-day judicial remand to the father of Farzana Perveen, who was killed outside the Lahore High Court last month in the name of ‘honour’ for marrying a man of her choice.

Mohammad Azeem, father of the victim, was produced before the court on completion of a seven-day physical remand. The victim's father, brothers, cousins and her former husband were among the accused for her murder.

The court also ordered the police to complete and submit the charge sheet against the accused as soon as possible so that justice could be administered swiftly. Farzana, 25, was beaten to death with bricks after being shot in the leg outside the court building by her family.

The hearing of the case has been adjourned till June 21.
